future? >> we certainly saw a lot of volatility following hurricane sandy even before gasoline prices have been volatile pretty much all year long. going forward we are glad to see the peace in the middle east. we still think there is room for prices to come down between now and christmas. we are cautiously optimistic. once we get into the new year we have to expect the prices to go up because of the regulations requiring summer blend gasoline. melissa: thank you for coming on. now i'm going to go straight home and see my kids instead. thank you. time now for today's fuel gauge report. a modest comeback after dropping slightly on news of a cease-fire in israel. natural gas prices rising to the highest level in years. after the reports of a $38 billion cubic foot drop in u.s. stock prices. closing with a $3.91, getting close to $4 again. the reports the u.n. climate panel says not enough is being done review greenhouse gas emissions. the effort being made to fight climate change is fall short of their goal of limiting global warming 2 degrees celsius. next on "money," union protest cau
're about the 400,000 mark, but most of this apparently reportedly is related to the storm. superstorm sandy. 75,000 new claims came from new york and new jersey alone and that's where the storm hit. that's in the news background. we've got consumer confidence numbers coming out in about 25 minutes and could move the market, but on a day like this right before the holidays, probably not. the greeks will not get their money, but of course, they'll start talking again on monday morning. no impact whatsoever on the stock market this morning. you're probably going to see a fairly light day, after all, the markets closed tomorrow for thanksgiving and it has to open on friday you can't close the stock market for more than three days straight so it opens friday, but ins a pre-holiday session likely to be pretty slow. the trading day has begun and we're expecting a pretty flat opening and that's what we've got. we're down .92. another unofficial economic indicator for you, john deere, the equipment maker of course, profits missed the mark. all right, nicole, how did that stock open. >> it's down 3%

sandy new jersey governor chris christie is receiving praise for his handling of the storm. according to a quinnipiac university poll, 36% of new york city voters say christie did the best job responding to the disaster. 22% say president obama's response was strongest. not everyone is pleased with christie's performance. a "new york times" report suggests some republicans still resent the popular governor for doing his job. they say the governor's praise of the president hurt mitt romney's chance on election day. romney advisers refer to data showing a high number of undecided voters chose president obama at the last minute citing his handling of sandy as the major reason. >> come on, man. >> i want to say quickly about christie, how he's acting, what you're supposed to do running for president, him going on "snl" last weekend becoming part of the culture, being loose, making fun of himself is the complete opposite of what rubio is doing. that's the way you run for president. you don't run for president. you become part of the daily. he's already there. >> that poll by the way was in
're blaming romney now. they were blaming chris christie for working with obama during hurricane sandy. now they're blaming romney for dancing with him through the election. get it? the strict orthodox side of the republican party are blaming the candidate himself for giving away their virtue. ed rendell is the former governor of pennsylvania, and msnbc political analyst. matt kibbe is the president of freedomworks. governor and matt, this is the most unusual pairing i've ever been part of, you and matt kibbe, you and the man of the northeast establishment, a moderate governor of pennsylvania. here is matt railing at the ramparts against all you represent. this should be interesting. the right fights back. since the election a lot of republicans' soul searching has focused on the need to broaden the political base of the republican party. fiscal and social conservatives are saying that's the wrong message. the correct takeaway, they say, from the election is that the party was too moderate. here is tea party favorite ted cruz, the senator-elect from texas. let's watch him. >> inevitably the

rating, now 67%. up 19 points from september. and a lot thanks to sandy and probably the "snl" this weekend. >> he did a good job on "saturday night live" but corey booker may run against him and beat him. who knows? >> i think chris christie is well positioned. marco rubio is well positioned candidate. i don't know that that's going to help them. you mentioned or someone mentioned a lot of women and minorities in their list of 2016 candidates but, you know, they had a woman and minority in the candidates and still chose mitt romney. i think they have an issue to get over with in terms of picking the right candidate. >> with finances, the right was pretty happy with the fact that paul ryan was chosen on the ticket considered to be a budget hawk on the hill. does he have a prospect, a brighter future because of the practice that he got out of going through this election and the lessons learned, possibly utilize that going forward? >> this conversation reminds me of the stephen colbert skit of a committee to explore the question of whether or not they should create a committee.
, the governors, cuomo, christie, malloy, if they went on holiday while we had sandy, what would you do? we have an economic crisis. they're going home for thapnk giving. they're going to take a short break in december. yeah, we have to have a patch, but we have to have a fix. >> so does he have a point? is congress taking the fiscal cliff seriously enough? joining me right now, the man in charge at insurance broker willis group. joe is also on the fix the debt campaign. it's great to have you on the program. >> nice to see you again. >> thank you so much. we had this big rally in stocks on monday. on some rhetoric, i guess, that led investors to believe there was optimism we will get a deal done on this fiscal cliff. now they've left town. what do you think happens? >> i don't understand why there's not a sense of urgency. i agree with mario. i don't know that people appreciate the fact what cliff means. remember sundance kid, butch ka cassidy, when they jump over the cliff and they fell? the taxes are going to go up. interest rates are going to go up. nobody will be able to borrow any money. y
